Making the positive case for Europe


Liberal Democrats in Oxfordshire believe that we need to make a positive case for the EU.

 

On Thursday 23rd June Oxfordshire residents will have their say on whether the UK should remain part of the European Union or not.

Here in Oxfordshire the case for remaining part of the EU is a very strong one. Employment in the county, along with the general standard of living, is high. Many people are already getting tired of listening to the Conservatives bickering with each other over Europe and resorting to scare tactics to make their case.

So it is vital that we fight a positive, patriotic campaign that is based on hope not fear.

There is so much we have achieved already in Europe. Together we have delivered decades of peace and prosperity and created the world's largest ever trading area. That has given us cheaper flights, lower mobile roaming charges and the opportunity to live, work and retire across the continent.

Together we are stronger in the fight against global problems like climate change and terrorism. British police have access to the tools they need to keep us safe and our world-beating scientists have access to vital EU research projects.

And we enjoy the highest consumer and environmental protections in the world.

Of course no-one is saying the EU is perfect. Just like all institutions it is in constant need of reform. But we do that by rolling up our sleeves and winning the argument, not pulling out and leaving ourselves isolated and alone.

Staying in Europe means we can continue working to deliver more opportunity, more security and more prosperity. The Lib Dems are making this positive case in Oxfordshire.
